Millions of people have stretch marks: unsightly lines and redness which can cause distress, embarrassment and a loss of confidence. Fortunately, stretch marks can be removed with advanced laser treatments. Laser treatments can improve the skin’s appearance and remove stretch marks leaving smoother, unlined skin. The treatment is suitable for most skin types and skin tones. How are stretch marks caused? Stretch marks are caused when the skin is stretched over a short period of time, such as during puberty, during pregnancy and in cases of weight gain. This rapid stretching weakens the collagen, resulting in a loss of elasticity. Marks or lines then appear in the dermis, the layer of skin which maintains its shape. Stretch marks can appear on any part of the skin which has undergone rapid stretching, such as the abdomen, breasts, hips, arms and legs.…

Laser tattoo removal is a safe procedure that usually finishes healing within 4 weeks. There are some things to keep in mind during this healing period to help your body along the way. What You Can Expect To See Blisters occur when liquid builds up underneath the skin. This is part of the healing process. It’s also normal to see blisters weeping, or releasing liquid. Do not pop blisters or try to remove them. Later on as the area dries, you will see the formation of scabs or crusty skin. Your skin is healing below the scab, and using it as protection. Do not remove the scab. They will fall off on their own when your body has healed itself. What Happens Immediately After The Procedure? Wait 2 hours before showering or cleansing the area. Do not apply the shower…

Microdermabrasion works by exfoliating old, dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin. By removing the old skin, you give new skin the chance to come to the surface without some of the fine lines and scars. The procedure is very gentle, and sprays the exfoliant lightly across the face. Compared to other skin removal procedures, this one is relatively painless with short healing periods. How does microdermabrasion work? Microdermabrasion relies on manually scrubbing away the old skin, whereas a chemical peel uses chemicals to loosen up the top layers. Microdermabrasion moves tiny crystals very quickly across the surface of the skin. The tiny crystals can be made from Aluminum Oxide. The fast moving crystals peel back subsequent layers of old cells. Once the new cells are exposed, you get an even layer of fresh skin with fewer…

Botox enzymes work by changing the way nerves work, which affects surrounding muscles. By temporarily disabling muscles, Botox can be used to treat a number of medical conditions, in addition to famously reducing wrinkles. What is Botox? Botox is a purified protein of the botulinum toxin. The toxin comes from bacteria, and comes in seven strains, A through G. The protein is then sterilized and diluted. It’s also approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Botox has been administered to millions of patients across the world, so it has been shown to be very safe. How does Botox work? Once administered to an area, the receptors at the ends of nerves are blocked. Incoming signals to communicating to the nerve is reduced, which leads to a number of effects.

The chemical peel speeds up the natural process of skin shedding. There are different types of chemical peels, all of which are applied in controlled amounts for specific times to control how deeply the chemicals will go. Chemical peels affect a variety of skin imperfections that sit on the surface of the skin. The end result is returning your skin to before it was scarred, in addition to smoothing wrinkles. How does skin removal work? Skin is formed in layers. Fresh, new skin cells sit at the very bottom and push their way up. Above the newer skin cells is older ones that have scars and other imperfections. As the new cells make their way to the surface, older ones slough away. At the very surface, you’ll have a rough mix of very old cells at a different levels. The…

Technically speaking, acne refers to a chronic inflammation of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles that results in pimples, pustules and often, scarring. Some of the prime areas for acne to erupt include the face, neck, upper back and chest. Adolescence is the main time that acne is problematic, but many adults also have regular skin eruptions. Whenever you happen to get it, it is frustrating and sometimes painful and getting rid of it is always the main priority. An Individual Approach Acne is a condition with several different treatment options, but not every treatment is ideal for every patient. That is why an individual approach is necessary and any treatment program should be monitored so changes can be made, if necessary. If a patient doesn’t respond to a particular treatment, the protocol may be re-arranged until it succeeds. External…

For many women, cellulite causes more stress, anxiety and embarrassment than almost anything else. Cellulite can dictate the type of clothes you buy, the places you go and cause a good deal of depression in the process. Up to 90 percent of the western female population over 20 years of age has some degree of cellulite, but despite the huge effect it will never be accepted. Basically, when fat cells in the adipose layer of the hypodermis get bigger, the connective tissue within that layer hardens and the dermis layer of the skin weakens, you have a great recipe for the dimpling appearance of cellulite. You’ll discover lots of ‘miracle solutions’ if you look hard enough, but these will reduce the size of your bank account more than anything else. You’re not likely to find a permanent solution for cellulite,…
